A big garage sale was held at Perla’s Sept. 5 and 6, with proceeds going to Dawn and Sid Scott’s animal clinic, which cares for, spays and neuters area cats and dogs. The Scotts continue to pour their hearts and souls into taking care of the animals that live in and around our communities. Suzanne Pryor, owner of Guanacaste Living Solutions in Flamingo, gave birth Aug. 27 to a healthy, big boy of nine pounds, James Ricardo Benavides Pryor.

The Liberia airport will be welcoming a weekly charter flight from Brussels on Jetair November through March, with the hopes of bringing more than 2,000 European tourists to Costa Rica over the four-month period. Advertising campaigns have started in Brussels with publicity in local papers, tourism fairs, publications to travel agencies and on the airline’s Web site, www.jetair.be.

SUDAR, the private water company that has served the Flamingo area for many years, is soon to be replaced.
